HISTORY

This successful Provencal winemaking estate dates back to the 16th century and is situated on land which the Ancient Romans used for wine production.

The Château Pigoudet is located in the north of the “Côteaux d’Aix-en-Provence” wine appellation. It lies 400m above sea level. The grapes are planted on 40 hectares of south facing slopes. Sustainable viticultural practises are adopted whenever possible.

A superb wine growing estate with a story to tell:

In 1992 German entrepreneur Bernhard Schmidt and his wife Elke Schmidt decided to realise a lifelong dream of owning a vineyard and purchased Château Pigoudet. They had immediately fallen in love with the property.

Since the death of her husband, Elke Schmidt has managed the estate with her daughter Sabine Rabe and her son-in-law Hans-Ulrich Rabe. Sabine Rabe is responsible for the export.
